Media Acclaim for Metaphysics:
"breathtakingly compelling, evocative and immersively lush new album..." - Music Life Magazine
"Listening to Canadian Sarah Slean’s newest album, Metaphysics, is a lot like entering a collector’s storage unit and unveiling its hidden treasures — works of art that allow the listener to discover Slean’s genius through immersive examination... it is this singer-songwriter’s experience as both a university music scholar who has been composing, producing and writing her own music on nine albums over the past 20 years, as well as a pop-music lover that makes her recent output so exceptional." - INSIGHT
“Sarah,” Slean's first single off of Metaphysics, is a healing anthem that will resonate with your soul." - CBCMusic.ca
"Her songs are simple, poignant and utterly personal, infused with jazz, classical, pop and Latin influences. Sarah Slean’s classiness as a songwriter defies period and genre." - Musical Toronto
"a fine piece of work that bears up well during repeat listens" - SCENE
"Sweeping melodies create an emotional atmosphere that match the powerful lyrics." - Canadian Beats
What’s The Story About Sarah Slean?
Signed to Atlantic/Warner Records at the tender age of 19, three-time Juno nominee and modern-day Renaissance woman Sarah Slean has since released 11 albums in over 10 countries worldwide - but perhaps the most astonishing aspect of her artistry is its breadth. Over her 20-year career, Slean has published two volumes of poetry, starred in short films and a movie musical (spawning two Gemini Award nominations), penned two string quartets, held numerous exhibitions of her paintings, and shared the stage with 8 of the country's professional orchestras. Classically trained from the age of 5, she routinely collaborates with cutting-edge contemporary classical ensembles like The Art of Time, and has been invited to sing world premieres by Canada's leading living composers. Citing such diverse influences as Leonard Bernstein, philosophy, Joni Mitchell, Buddhism and Bach, her music borrows aspects of cabaret, rock, pop, and orchestral: all knit together by the startling poetry of her lyrics, virtuosic piano-playing, and that voice, described by the CBC as “a 19th century Kate Bush”. In addition to headlining theatres across Canada, Sarah has also toured Europe, the US and Scandinavia and has opened internationally for such artists as Bryan Ferry, Rufus Wainwright, Alanis Morissette, Andrew Bird, Feist, Ron Sexsmith, Chris Isaak, and Buck 65. Metaphysics, her first recording in 5 years, was released on April 7th, 2017 via Cadence Music/Fontana North. It features two CBC Radio 2 - Top 20 songs Sarah and Perfect Sky and is described as a breathtaking amalgamation of Slean’s dramatic orchestral arranging and her signature take on songwriting.
